PORTAGE, Wis. (WMTV) -- Both directions of I-39 were completely closed after a crash south of Portage.

According to the Wisconsin Dept. of Transportation, officials closed all northbound and southbound lanes near mile marker 85, in Columbia Co., which is just past where I-39 splits from I-90/94 for northbound drivers.

The crash occurred shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday and officials estimated the closures would last two hours or more. Lanes were closed for about three and a half hours.

Authorities told NBC15 News that two vehicles were involved, but few other details, including if anyone was injured have been released.

All lanes of traffic are now open.
